NTSF formatted drives are not "Seen" by windows 9x Operating systems
It isn't only the maximum file size but at a certain point FAT32 actually runs out of sector numbers for the file allocation table
that gives "FAT" it's name...
other than that the advantages of NTSF are legion.
If you are a care with computer maintainance and defrag often
you'll be pleased to discover that NTSF drives tend to defrag faster
on an NT/2k/XP system than a FAT32 drive does.
If you use disckeeper you'll discover that you cannot use fragguard
on a fat32 drive.... there is more but that's all the justification needed to switch.
